Q’Orianka Kilcher & her new Honda FCX

Today Q’orianka Kilcher, best known around the world as Pocahontas from New World with Colin Farrell, received the keys to her zero-emissions Honda FCX hydrogen fuel cell vehicle lease. She is the youngest person to receive this car, the first recipients being the Spallino family over 2 years ago.

Q’orianka has done some incredible environmental work in Peru with Amazon Watch, putting some major pressure on petroleum companies.

Hydrogen cars have kind of become her trademark, arriving to the New World premiere and the Oscars in some incredible prototype hydrogen fuel cell cars. “As a young person today, I feel it is important to take initiative toward seeking positive solutions and stepping up the quest toward clean energy and environmental preservation,” said Q’orianka Kilcher. “When I first started pursuing my dream of a zero emissions vehicle as my first car, it seemed like a pretty unrealistic dream. With Honda’s innovation and support, my dream of helping the environment became a reality!”

We were at the event today when Q’orianka received the keys to her car – we’ll bring you the behind the scenes info as soon as we can. Stay tuned.
